“Urodynamics is the study of lower urinary tract function and how this relates to a patient’s urinary symptoms. The aim is to reproduce the patient’s lower urinary tract symptoms to provide a pathophysiological explanation and to guide treatment.”¹
Urodynamics evaluations are:
Urodynamics evaluation typically require a catheter in the bladder and another catheter in the rectum. The bladder is drained and artificially filled before the patient is asked to void.
Catheter use and artificial filling of the bladder may confound results. Conventional methods of urodynamics evaluation fail to replicate symptoms in up to 46% of patients.²
Equipment is expensive and costly to maintain. Because the equipment takes up so much space, evaluations are performed in a procedure room.
Bright Uro is developing the most comfortable, accurate, and efficient tools to aid in diagnosis of lower urinary tract conditions.
Our goal is to make:
– Patients more comfortable
– Clinicians more confident
– Practices more efficient
